Tulisa Contostavlos struggles not to feel like ''the most hated woman in Britain''.
The 'Young' singer has been flooded with abusive messages from cyber bullies on twitter but tries not to let their negativity get to her.
The 24-year-old 'X Factor' judge told the Mirror newspaper: ''People just do it for the sake of it - they will sit down and write the most horrific, abusive messages and they couldn't care less.
''Sometimes they are 12-year-old kids sending these things. I've seen grown women read the messages and it brings tears to their eyes.
''I've had people tell me this has happened to them but it's something you have got to let go over your head.
''If I was to base my opinion on Twitter I'd be like, 'Oh my god, I must be the most hated woman in Britain'.
''But I go around the street and despite all the abusive messages not one person comes up to me and says anything other than nice things and ask for a picture.''
Meanwhile, the singer is eager to make sure her 'X Factor ' contestants are confident and ''100 per cent'' themselves throughout the series.
Tulisa is mentoring the girls category in this year's show and is keen to ensure Lucy Spraggan, Ella Henderson and Jade Ellis are not uncomfortable on the stage or behind the scenes as she believes that will help one of her acts win.
